Subject: 	The Shakespeare Apocrypha

The latest issue of the Shakespeare Yearbook is now available from Edwin 
Mellen Press.  Dedicated to the theme of the Shakespeare Apocrypha, the 
essays approach the topic from a range of theoretical and historical 
perspectives.  In addition to the volume's 11 theme-related essays, the 
issue begins with a substantial investigation into the historical record 
of John and William Shakespeare's religious affiliation by the historian 
Glyn Parry. Among Professor Parry's discoveries is new evidence to 
suggest that there is no connection between the William Shakeshafte -- 
who received an annuity in the will of Alexander Hoghton, a Catholic 
Lancashire gentleman -- and William Shakespeare. The volume also 
includes more than 100 pages of Book Reviews.
